If churches could run on love alone, Prince of Peace would be a well oiled machine.
In the present world we need financial contributions to pay the Pastors and staff, keep the building safe and warm, and to support special projects that need our help.
Prince of Peace is both generous and cautious with the donations it receives. Click here to see the 2018 Annual Report approved by the congregation at our annual meeting.
65% of general offering donations go to pay salaries for our full- and part-time professional staff: two Pastors, Office Manager, Director of Youth & Service, Director of Music, Organist, and Treasurer.
25% goes to operations expenses including utilities, advertising, phone, internet, janitorial services, property repair, and mortgage.
The final 10% are investments in our ministry, local giving, and donations to the larger church (synod).
Prince of Peace attendees gave an additional $92,000 in 2018 to special projects that are not reflected in the budget. The number includes over $38,000 for a school in Tanzania, $13,000 to a food pantry (not including the food donated) and $9,000 to send over 25 children from a homeless shelter to summer camp. PoPpers are truly generous with both their time and treasure.
